“We are thrilled to be bringing TinyCo to Canada! The wealth of top talent and strong community make Vancouver the perfect place for us to continue to grow. We see a great opportunity to further cultivate our winning culture, infrastructure, and creative there. It was an easy choice already, but it didn’t hurt that I originally hail from Saskatchewan!” –Laurie Deneschuk, Chief People Officer, TinyCo.
The developer is backed by an $18 million investment led by venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz.
